Revenge is never justified. Instead of seeking to hurt people in proportion to how much they hurt others our goal should be rehabilitation when possible and protection when it isn't. As Ghandi noted, seeking revenge leads to ever escalating retributions until we are all fighting.
i do usually get back at people but in a sophisticated way lol i am passive aggressive but still i find revenge wrong. i admire when people just stay doing the right think even when they have a right to be upset, shows maturity
I believe in an eye for an eye, but I don't practice it. I wait for karma to come along and take care of it for me :)
Yes, It is a very important proverb. Regardless how many people don't follow.
Eye for an eye..
